Happy Memorial Day!

Hello friends and followers!  I hope you are enjoying this wonderful day that honors those who serve this amazing country in which we live, past and present.  I have two cards for you today.  The first is for Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge 77, here is the sketch:
And here is my case based on it:
Get it?  'No see' with a super shaggy and adorable puppy?  BWAHAHAHA!  The cool thing about this card, other than the face that it is dog themed of course, is that I won it by participating in a past SSD sketch challenge (pretty good incentive to start playing along huh?  You could win cool stamp sets like this one!) AND this is a sneak peek because the set I used, Dogs Vol. 1, has not even been released yet!  How cool is that?!!  So make sure you keep your eyes peeled on the SSD blog for its debut.  At the top I actually punched three silver 'tags' using Stampin' Up!'s tag punch held together with a silver eyelet courtesy of my Crop-a-dile, but they didn't fan out as much as I thought they would as I accidentally squeezed it too tight.  This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:
Crazy Challenge 69 - Pets, and 
Fab 'n Funky Challenge 74 - Cute & Cuddly. 

My second card was for Giovana's Release Party Challenge over at Stamp TV to make an all black and white card:
I used Gina K. Designs' Fine Furnishings Additions set and paper pieced some Making Memories patterned paper I got on sale at Tuesday Morning (SCORE!).  Rather elegant no?  This card also fulfills the requirements of the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown 50 - make a card with stripes, and
Stamp Something Challenge - stamp something with a sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you are enjoying your day!
